Russell Crowe controversy[edit]

After he won for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Crowe gave a speech in which he quoted a poem by Patrick Kavanagh. When the show was aired, Crowe was upset that the poem was cut. He blamed the producer, Malcolm Gerrie, and confronted him about it. It was reported that the confrontation got physical and there was speculation that it would cost him the Academy Award.[1][2][3][4][5] The poem that was cut was a four line poem:

To be a poet and not know the trade,
To be a lover and repel all women;
Twin ironies by which great saints are made,
The agonising pincer-jaws of heaven.
